Lopo is the Founder and CEO of Treatwell, Europe’s largest hair and beauty marketplace. The company, which is headquartered in London, has over 10 million appointments made through its online bookings platform annually, it employs over 500 people and has over 30,000 spas and salons using its service, with 1,500 new ones joining each month. Projected turnover for 2016 is €100m.

Back in 2008, Treatwell started its journey as a ‘daily deals site’ called Wahanda. Offering dramatically reduced prices on haircuts and beauty treatments, it rapidly grew to becoming the third largest ‘daily deals’ provider in the UK. Lopo however, saw the opportunity to pivot the business and shift to a more sustainable model – moving away from an impulse buy business offering, to one that has brought the hair and beauty industry into the digital age by allowing people to book regular beauty treatments at a time and venue that suits them, as well as providing a platform that supports spas and salons wanting to increase their yield and customer base.

At the start of the year (Jan 2016) the company rebranded following a major European expansion campaign that included five acquisitions over nine months – changing its name from Wahanda to Treatwell. The company now has a product offering in ten countries; it is aiming to have a leading presence in 20 countries within the next four years.

​Raised in Lisbon and Montreal, Lopo studied at McGill University before moving into banking and private equity with Pictet and Wand Investments. Prior to founding Wahanda in 2008, Lopo was MD of Lifestyle at, and the founder of two successful data and CRM start-ups in NYC.
